Dear Susan & Nancy,

I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. He was such a nice man. Bette and I always loved meeting you at your dad’s prime spot in the sheep barn at the fair. We always thought his sheep were the best ones there. We loved spending 4th of July and New Year’s Eve with your family. Our parents surely enjoyed being friends with your parents! I’m imagining that they are all enjoying the wonders of heaven together! I’m sorry that I won’t be able to attend the funeral service, because I would have loved seeing you both again, my childhood friends! Praying for the Lord to comfort you both with His love and grace!

Love & prayers,
Cathy (Oman) Gons
